CALL TO WORSHIP
God is our midst, forming us to be God’s own people. Though the way may be difficult, God will be with us. We need not fear, even if the territory feels foreign to us. In the Lord we will take our refuge, for God is our strength.
HYMN “O For a Thousand Tongues to Sing” #57 UMH Verses 1-3, 7
PRAYER OF THANKSGIVING
O God, in mystery and silence you are present in our lives, bringing new life out of destruction, hope out of despair, growth out of difficulty. We thank you that you do not leave us alone, but labor to make us whole. Help us to perceive your unseen hand in the unfolding of our lives, even amidst the troubles of our world. Help us to attend to the gentle guidance of your Spirit, that we may know the joy you give your people. May we receive that joy with thanksgiving in our hearts, and spread it to all those whose lives we touch, today and in all the days that follow. In Christ our Lord we pray, Amen.
Psalm 137: 1-6
Luke 12: 4-7
